Treatment of disease by inserting needles along specific pathways or meridians. The placement varies with the disease being treated. It is sometimes used in conjunction with heat, moxibustion, acupressure, or electric stimulation.
The occupational discipline of the traditional Chinese methods of ACUPUNCTURE THERAPY for treating disease by inserting needles along specific pathways or meridians.
Analgesia produced by the insertion of ACUPUNCTURE needles at certain ACUPUNCTURE POINTS on the body. This activates small myelinated nerve fibers in the muscle which transmit impulses to the spinal cord and then activate three centers - the spinal cord, midbrain and pituitary/hypothalamus - to produce analgesia.
Designated locations along nerves or organ meridians for inserting acupuncture needles.
Acupuncture therapy by inserting needles in the ear. It is used to control pain and for treating various ailments.
The burning of a small, thimble sized, smoldering plug of dried leaves on the SKIN at an ACUPUNCTURE point. Usually the plugs contain leaves of MUGWORT or moxa.
Classical loci in ACUPUNCTURE. They are main and collateral channels, regarded as a network of passages, through which vital energy (Qi) circulates and along which acupoints (ACUPUNCTURE POINTS) are distributed. The meridians are a series of 14 lines upon which more than 400 acupoints are located on the body. (The Pinyin Chinese-English Dictionary, p. 359; Dr. Wu Lancheng, Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Beijing)
A form of acupuncture with electrical impulses passing through the needles to stimulate NERVE TISSUE. It can be used for ANALGESIA; ANESTHESIA; REHABILITATION; and treatment for diseases.
The systematic and methodical manipulations of body tissues best performed with the hands for the purpose of affecting the nervous and muscular systems and the general circulation.

Facilities having programs intended to promote and maintain a state of physical well-being for optimal performance and health.
Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.

A single-blind, placebo-controlled trial of a simple acupuncture treatment in the cessation of smoking. (1/798)

BACKGROUND: Tobacco smoking is a major cause of preventable disease and premature death. Physicians should play an active role in the control of smoking by encouraging cessation and helping the smoker to choose the most suitable aid to cessation. AIM: To evaluate a simple, ear acupuncture treatment for the cessation of smoking. METHOD: Randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 78 currently smoking volunteers from the general public. Volunteers attended an acupuncture clinic in a general practice setting and were given a single treatment of electroacupuncture using two needles at either an active or a placebo site plus self-retained ear seeds for two weeks. The major outcome measure was biochemically validated total cessation of smoking at six months. RESULTS: A total of 12.5% of the active treatment group compared with 0% of the placebo group ceased smoking at six months (P = 0.055, 95% confidence interval -0.033 to 0.323). CONCLUSION: This simple ear electroacupuncture treatment was significantly more effective in helping volunteers to quit smoking than placebo treatment.  (+info)

Acupressure-acupuncture antiemetic prophylaxis in children undergoing tonsillectomy. (2/798)

BACKGROUND: Acupuncture or acupressure at the Nei-Guan (P.6) point on the wrist produces antiemetic effects in awake but not anesthetized patients. The authors studied whether a combined approach using preoperative acupressure and intra- and postoperative acupuncture can prevent emesis following tonsillectomy in children. METHODS: Patients 2-12 yr of age were randomly assigned to study or placebo groups. Two Acubands with (study) and two without (placebo) spherical beads were applied bilaterally on the P.6 points; non-bead- and bead-containing Acubands, respectively, were applied on the sham points. All Acubands were applied before any drug administration. After anesthetic induction, acupuncture needles were substituted for the beads and remained in situ until the next day. All points were covered with opaque tape to prevent study group identification. A uniform anesthetic technique was used; postoperative pain was managed initially with morphine and later with acetaminophen and codeine. Emesis, defined as retching or vomiting, was assessed postoperatively. Ondansetron was administered only after two emetic episodes at least 2 min apart. Droperidol was added if emesis persisted. RESULTS: One hundred patients were enrolled in the study. There were no differences in age, weight, follow-up duration, or perioperative opioid administration between groups. Retching occurred in 26% of the study patients and in 28% of the placebo patients; 51 and 55%, respectively, vomited; and 60 and 59%, respectively, did either. There were no significant differences between the groups. Redness occurred in 8.5% of acupuncture sites. CONCLUSION: Perioperative acupressure and acupuncture did not diminish emesis in children following tonsillectomy.  (+info)

The effect of acupuncture in chronic intractable epilepsy. (3/798)

We examined the effect of acupuncture on epileptic seizures in humans in a controlled clinical setting. Treatment was administered by two Chinese professors of acupuncture. Effect was measured by change in seizure frequency. Twenty-nine patients with chronic intractable epilepsy completed the study. They were randomized in two groups; 15 were given classical acupuncture and 14 were given sham acupuncture. There was a reduction in seizure frequency in both groups, which did not reach a level of statistical significance. There was also an increase in the number of seizure-free weeks in both groups, which reached a level of significance in the sham group. Thus, we have not been able to prove a beneficial effect of acupuncture in chronic intractable epilepsy.  (+info)

Acupuncture in alcoholism treatment: a randomized out-patient study. (4/798)

Seventy-two alcoholics were treated with acupuncture to the ear in a randomized single-blind controlled design over 10 weeks. Orthodox points and incorrect points 3-5 mm from orthodox points were used. No initial differences were found regarding social characteristics, the responses to the Swedish version of the Alcohol Use Inventory and the Three-dimensional Personality Questionnaire, indicating a successful randomization. There were non-significant tendencies towards gender differential response after acupuncture treatment (P = 0.07). There was no difference in the number of drinking days or level of craving between treatment and control patients. Among females, those in the treatment group reported reduction of anxiety after 1 month, more often than those in the control group (P < 0.05). Response to acupuncture was not related to personality or drinking pattern. Patients' experience of needle placement was similar in the study and control groups. The effects of acupuncture were less pronounced than those previously reported.  (+info)

The effect of acupuncture on patients with rheumatoid arthritis: a randomized, placebo-controlled cross-over study. (5/798)

OBJECTIVE: Acupuncture is commonly used by patients with chronic painful musculoskeletal disorders. There are, however, few well-designed studies of its efficacy. This paper describes a randomized placebo-controlled cross-over design to evaluate acupuncture as a useful treatment adjunct in the management of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Sixty-four patients were centrally randomized from a hospital-based rheumatology out-patient clinic. Fifty-six patients were suitable for study, all were on second-line therapy and aged 18-75 yr. There had been no change in therapy for the preceding 3 months. Patients who had previous acupuncture, anticoagulation, fear of needles or infection were excluded. Single-point (Liver 3) acupuncture or placebo was given with an intervening 6 week wash-out period. The acupuncturist, patient and statistician were blinded as far as possible. The outcome measures included the inflammatory markers (erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein), visual analogue scale of pain, global patient assessment, 28 swollen and tender joint count, and a general health questionnaire. RESULTS: The results demonstrated no significant effect of treatment or period and no significant interaction between treatment and period for any outcome variable. No adverse effects were reported. CONCLUSION: Acupuncture of this type cannot be considered as a useful adjunct to therapy in patients with RA. Possible reasons why this is the case are discussed.  (+info)

Survey of acupuncturists: practice characteristics and pediatric care. (6/798)

OBJECTIVE: To describe the practice characteristics and pediatric care provided by licensed acupuncturists. DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey. SETTING: Boston metropolitan area. SUBJECTS: 227 licensed acupuncturists were surveyed; 140 (62%) responded. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: (1) DEMOGRAPHICS, (2) practice characteristics, (3) pediatric care, (4) recommendations of peers recognized as experts in pediatric acupuncture. RESULTS: (1) DEMOGRAPHICS: 70% Caucasian, 61% female; (2) practice characteristics: average of 39 visits weekly with an average charge of $54 for a 57-minute visit; patients were typically scheduled for follow-up once or twice weekly; only 5% of fees were covered by insurance; 80% recommended herbal remedies and 66% dispensed herbs in the office; (3) few acupuncturists treated more than one child per week; most used non-needle techniques or Japanese-style acupuncture to stimulate points in children; 85% would refer a febrile two-week-old infant immediately to a physician; (4) only 17 acupuncturists were recommended by three or more peers and saw three or more patients weekly; their practices were all in wealthy suburban areas. CONCLUSIONS: Most acupuncturists in the Boston area are Caucasian and female. Compared with physicians, they schedule patients for more frequent follow-up, allocate more time, are less likely to be reimbursed by insurance, and treat fewer children. Additional studies are needed to assess effectiveness, quality, and access to acupuncture services for adults and children.  (+info)

Integrative approach to the treatment of postherpetic neuralgia: a case series. (7/798)

OBJECTIVE: To determine if the addition of alternative therapy to conventional medicine enhances the treatment of pain in postherpetic neuralgia (PHN). METHODOLOGY: A review of literature from 1988-1998 was conducted on the MEDLINE database, searching for information on the current treatment of PHN. The literature review found that although many medications have been used to reduce the pain of PHN, no treatments have been completely successful in decreasing pain. Data on pain reduction in PHN following treatment with a multifaceted alternative therapy combined with conventional treatment were compiled from a group of patients in the principal investigator's family medicine practice. RESULTS: The alternative therapy employed in this study, combined with selected medications, showed an average pain reduction of 72.1 percent. There was a 77-percent average pain reduction in patients with herpes zoster (HZ) onset of more than one year and a 68-percent reduction in patients with HZ onset between one month and one year. Almost two-thirds of the 56 PHN patients reported pain reductions of between 75 and 100 percent. CONCLUSION: These preliminary data suggest the combination of alternative therapy and selected conventional medications provides good pain relief for most patients presenting with PHN. Randomized trials with appropriate control groups are needed to validate the effectiveness of this therapy in the treatment of PHN.  (+info)

A meta-analysis of acupuncture techniques for smoking cessation. (8/798)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effectiveness of acupuncture for smoking cessation and to examine whether any individual aspect of trials is associated with an effect. DATA SOURCES: All randomised controlled trials of acupuncture for smoking cessation that were listed in computerised databases or reference lists of relevant articles. STUDY SELECTION: All randomised single-blind studies that compared acupuncture with sham acupuncture. DATA EXTRACTION: Methodological data were extracted for quality assessment. Outcome data were extracted for rates of total smoking cessation at three intervals: early after treatment and after six and 12 months follow up. DATA SYNTHESIS: Results were expressed as odds ratios of success over failure in intervention over control groups. The combined odds ratio for all studies was calculated. Repeated meta-analyses were subsequently performed on subsets of studies combined according to defined characteristics: acupuncture technique, number of attendances, country of origin, status of journal, and control procedure. The overall quality of studies was poor. The combined odds ratio for smoking cessation calculated for the earliest results after the end of treatment was 1.20 (95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) = 0.98 to 1.48). The combined odds ratio for smoking cessation after six months was 1.29 (95% CI = 0.82 to 2.01), and after 12 months was 1.03 (95% CI = 0.73 to 1.46). There were no significant effects of relevance among subsets of studies grouped according to defined characteristics. CONCLUSIONS: Acupuncture was not superior to sham acupuncture for smoking cessation; no particular aspect of acupuncture technique was associated with a positive effect. The conclusions are limited by methodological inadequacies of studies and by the absence of testable hypotheses; design of future trials should avoid these deficiencies.  (+info)

in reply: As I attempted to briefly summarize in the article, research on acupuncture is difficult. An excellent resource on acupuncture research is the book Acupuncture Research: Strategies for Establishing an Evidence Base.1 Most research protocols standardize acupuncture therapy in a way that does not mirror the usual practice of acupuncture, which is individualized based on many factors (e.g., Chinese rather than Western medicine diagnosis; acupuncturists training and experience). For many pain problems, it is not unusual for nontraditional modern acupuncture techniques such as percutaneous nerve stimulation and intramuscular stimulation (sometimes referred to as dry needling) to be combined with, or used instead of, traditional Qi-moving acupuncture treatment. Sham acupuncture usually involves skin puncture with acupuncture needles at locations different from standard acupuncture. Because the mechanisms of acupuncture are not well understood, sham treatments that include skin puncture ...

Adverse effects such as fatigue, pain, erythema, nausea and vomiting are commonly known in patients undergoing irradiation (RT) alone or in combination with chemotherapy (RCHT). Patients suffering from these symptoms are limited in their daily life and their quality of life (QOL) is often reduced. As addressed in several trials, acupuncture can cause amelioration of these specific disorders. Especially for pain symptoms, several groups have shown efficacy of acupuncture. To what extent the difference between traditional acupuncture (verum acupuncture) and false acupuncture (sham acupuncture) is in reducing side effects and improvement of QOL is not clear. ROSETTA is a prospective randomized phase II trial (version 1.0) to examine the efficacy of traditional acupuncture in patients with RT-related side effects. In the experimental (verum) arm (n = 37) an experienced acupuncture-trained person will treat dedicated acupuncture points. In the control (sham) arm (n = 37) sham acupuncture will be performed to
Acupuncture for the Knee. Acupuncture was applied to patients with total knee arthroplasty starting at day 7 following knee replacement surgery. Acupuncture was administered three times per week until day 21 when the treatment regime was discontinued. Range of motion improved, swelling measurably decreased and pain levels were significantly lower in the acupuncture study group than in the group that did not receive acupuncture therapy. As a result of these findings, the researchers conclude that acupuncture is effective in the post-acute phase of knee rehabilitation following total knee replacement surgery.. This study builds on earlier findings that acupuncture benefits the knee. In other recent research, investigators discovered that acupuncture reduces knee pain and increases range of motion for patients with osteoarthritis. An interesting study, it compared sham acupuncture with modern acupuncture and classical acupuncture techniques. The sham acupuncture, a form of simulated placebo ...
Paralysis After Traumatic Brain Injury: Can Acupuncture Help?. Can acupuncture help patients with limb paralysis caused by traumatic brain injury (TBI)? A new study suggests it has promising potential. Published in the Chinese journal of Acupuncture Research, the study included 70 TBI patients divided into a medication group and an acupuncture plus medication group. The goal of the study: to observe the clinical effect of early acupuncture treatment of limb paralysis in patients with traumatic brain injury. The therapeutic effect of acupuncture plus medication was obviously superior to that of simple medication in lowering focal injured volume on day 14 and 28, and in increasing FMA and ADL-BI scores on day 28 and 60. … The therapeutic effect of acupuncture plus medication was [also] evidently superior to that of simple medication in lowering IL-6 on day 3 and 7, and in increasing BDNF and NGF levels on day 3, 7 and 14. The researchers concluded: Early acupuncture treatment can ...

In the largest experiment on acupuncture for back pain to date, more than 1,100 patients were randomly assigned to receive either acupuncture, sham acupuncture or conventional therapy. For the sham acupuncture, needles were inserted, but not as deeply as for the real thing. The sham acupuncture also did not insert needles in traditional acupuncture points on the body and the needles were not manually moved and rotated.. After six months, patients answered questions about pain and functional ability and their scores determined how well each of the therapies worked. In the real acupuncture group, 47 percent of patients improved. In the sham acupuncture group, 44 percent did. In the usual care group, 27 percent got relief. ...

Acupuncture is widely used to enhance stroke recovery in Eastern countries. However, a recent randomized controlled trial demonstrated that acupuncture has no specific efficacy in stroke rehabilitation [17]. A meta-analysis of sham-controlled randomized clinical trials concluded that there is insufficient evidence to support the use of acupuncture for functional recovery after stroke [18]. These data have led to ongoing controversy regarding the use of acupuncture therapy after stroke, despite the thousands years of evidence from traditional Chinese medicine practice.. The occupational therapists technique in the manipulation and selection of acupoints is the most important factor that determines the efficacy of acupuncture therapy [19]. In the present study, all occupational therapists are experts with more than ten years of acupuncture practice and plenty of experience with stroke treatments. The acupoints selected in this trial correspond to a complex prescription for stroke therapy ...
Acupuncture is a means of encouraging the body to activate its own healing abilities to restore normal function to problem areas. This is done in modern times by inserting very fine needles to specific points on the body called acupuncture points. The oldest known acupuncture texts are from China and date from 3,000 years ago. However, acupuncture has expanded into other regions and many different approaches exist today, including Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese styles. In recent years, Western medicine has become interested in acupuncture. Acupuncture used alongside orthodox western medicine is sometimes called Medical Acupuncture. Western acupuncturists may use traditional Chinese acupuncture points, trigger points or a combination of points.
The objective was to evaluate whether acupuncture at term can influence cervical ripening and thus reduce the need for postdates induction. On their due dates 45 women were randomized into either an acupuncture group (25) or control group (20).. The women were then examined at two daily intervals for cervical length (measured with vaginal trasonography, cervical mucus and cervical stasis according to Bishops score). The acupuncture group also received acupuncture every two days at the acupuncture points Hegu LI 4 and Sanyinjiao Sp 6.. If women had not delivered after 10 days labour was induced by administering vaginal prostaglandin tablets. The time period from the womans due date to delivery was on average 5 days in the acupuncture group compared to 7.9 days in the control group. Labour was induced in 20 % of women in the acupuncture group compared to 35% in the control group. There were no differences between overall duration of labour and the first and second stage of labour. ...
Acupuncture stimulation at specific points, or trigger points (TPs), elicits sensations called de-qi. De-qi sensations relate to the clinical efficacy of the treatment. However, it is neither clear whether de-qi sensations are associated with TPs, nor clear whether acupuncture effects on brain activity are associated with TPs or de-qi. We recorded cerebral hemodynamic responses during acupuncture stimulation at TPs and non-TPs by functional near-infrared spectroscopy. The acupuncture needle was inserted into both TPs and non-TPs within the right extensor muscle in the forearm. Typical acupuncture needle manipulation was conducted eight times for 15 s. The subjects pressed a button if they felt a de-qi sensation. We investigated how hemodynamic responses related to de-qi sensations induced at TPs and non-TPs. We observed that acupuncture stimulations producing de-qi sensations significantly decreased the Oxy-Hb concentration in the supplementary motor area (SMA), pre-supplementary motor area, ...

Objective : Acupuncture (from the Latin acus, needle, and pungere, to prick) is a technique of inserting and manipulating fine needles at specific points on the body. As a placebo acupuncture needle device was developed based on the visual impact of needling, it has been raised that it is useful only when acupuncture points and needling are visible to subjects. To examine the visual factor of the placebo acupuncture, the present study was aimed to compare the blinding index of the verum and placebo acupuncture between masked and unmasked situation. Methods : Thirty-six patients were randomly alloted to be stimulated with a verum or placebo acupuncture in a cross-over design. They were asked to guess a right answer whether they were stimulated with the verum or placebo acupuncture at LI4 in an unmasked or masked situation.

Natural News) Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. Ancient Chinese practitioners used it to treat a variety of ailments, especially those which caused pain. In the U.S., the rise of holistic treatments has revived the demand for acupuncture. It is currently used to treat multiple conditions ranging from digestive problems to sleep disorders. Now, studies reveal that acupuncture could also be used to address polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). A meta-analysis published in the journal Medicine evaluated the effects of acupuncture treatment on PCOS. A statistical analysis of the results of 27 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) revealed that acupuncture can improve hormone levels when used together with PCOS medication. It also improved fasting insulin levels in four different trials.. To search for studies with relevant data, the researchers used several databases and screened 1,024 articles related to acupuncture and PCOS. They found 27 RCTs that passed their criteria for analysis; ...

Background The mechanisms of action underlying acupuncture, including acupuncture point specificity, are not well understood. In the previous decade, an increasing number of studies have applied fMRI to investigate brain response to acupuncture stimulation. Our aim was to provide a systematic overview of acupuncture fMRI research considering the following aspects: 1) differences between verum and sham acupuncture, 2) differences due to various methods of acupuncture manipulation, 3) differences between patients and healthy volunteers, 4) differences between different acupuncture points. Methodology/Principal Findings We systematically searched English, Chinese, Korean and Japanese databases for literature published from the earliest available up until September 2009, without any language restrictions. We included all studies using fMRI to investigate the effect of acupuncture on the human brain (at least one group that received needle-based acupuncture). 779 papers were identified, 149 met the
Acupuncture can reduce migraine headaches compared to both sham (placebo) acupuncture and usual care, finds a new trial from China published by The BMJ today.. The researchers say doctors should provide information about acupuncture as an option when discussing preventive treatment strategies with patients.. More than one billion people worldwide are affected by migraine. It has considerable impact on quality of life and imposes a substantial burden on society. For people with frequent migraines, preventive treatments to reduce headache frequency are available, but not all patients respond well to drug therapy and many prefer to avoid it. Evidence for the benefit of acupuncture on migraine prevention has been mixed.. So a team of researchers based in China set out to compare the effectiveness of manual (real) acupuncture with sham (placebo) acupuncture or usual care.. Their findings are based on 147 patients (average age 37) with a history of migraine without aura who were recruited from seven ...

The acupuncture technique has evolved from an exotic curiosity to a form of treatment, over the years. It stems from medical practices of the Traditional Chinese culture. In this technique, the Acupuncturist in Brampton will insert fine needles into specific parts of your body.. Research and various studies carried out in determining the efficacy of this medical protocol shows that Acupuncture works by correcting the energy imbalances in ones body. According to the Chinese belief, this technique is used to modify ones chi or qi, i.e. the flow of energy in the body. It has been widely employed in China, as a traditional technique to treat and prevent diseases.. How does it Work? When you visit your trusted therapist for an Acupuncture in Brampton appointment, he or she is going to use fine needles, heat, pressure and other treatments, e.g. electric stimulation, that are applied to different parts of your skin. Even though needles are a standard tool of the trade, in acupuncture therapy, the ...
RESULTS: The results showed that the acupuncture group and the electro-acupuncture group could delay the time of requesting morphine up to 10 - 11 minutes when compared with the control group. The total dose of PCA used within the first 24 hours was 30% - 35% less in the acupuncture group and the electro-acupuncture group when compared with the control group, which was indicated in statistical significance. However, there was no significant difference between the acupuncture group and the electro-acupuncture group. The electro-acupuncture groups and the acupuncture groups pain scores were lower than the control groups within the first 2 hours. Both were statistically significant. However, two hours later, there were no significant differences of the visual analogue scale (VAS) scores between either of the treatment groups and the control group. Finally, the incidence of opioid-related side effects, such as dizziness, was less in the acupuncture group and electro-acupuncture group than in the ...

Acupuncture is a treatment based on traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese acupuncture usually is done by putting very thin needles into the skin at certain points on the body to produce energy flow along the bodys meridians; other types of acupuncture may use heat, pressure, or mild electrical current to stimulate energy flow along these meridians.. Some people may use acupuncture to treat substance use disorder, fibromyalgia, back pain, and many other conditions. There is some evidence that acupuncture may stimulate the production of the bodys natural painkillers (endorphins, serotonin, and acetylcholine).. In general, acupuncture is safe when done by a certified acupuncturist. A state license ensures that the acupuncturist has a certain level of training and follows certain practice guidelines, such as using sterilized needles that are disposed of after one use. In the United States, acupuncture needles are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as therapeutic ...
And, as you might expect, acupuncturists and other supporters of superstitious and pseudoscientific treatments are proclaiming that they have been vindicated.. The study looked at 29 randomized clinical trials of acupuncture for various sorts of pain, including back, neck and headache. It looked at studies that used sham and no-acupuncture controls. Sham acupuncture is where the patient thinks they are getting acupuncture, but typically the needle is not being inserted, merely pressed against the skin. Vickers et al. reported that when acupuncture was compared with no- acupuncture, reported reduction in pain was fairly large, about 30%. However, crucially for supporters of acupuncture, they reported a moddest improvement of pain when real acupuncture was compared with sham acupuncture.. And as such, the media reports of this finding (with a few honourable exceptions) have followed the abstracts conclusion that acupuncture is a valid treatment option for chronic pain. David Gorski at ...
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a medical system that dates back nearly 4,000 years. Auricular acupuncture was first mentioned around 500 B.C. in the Yellow Emperors Classic of Internal Medicine, which is the equivalent of the Bible for TCM practitioners. However, the method in which auricular acupuncture is practiced today is actually based upon discoveries that occurred in France in the 1950s. Modern auricular acupuncture is based upon the work done by Dr. Paul Nogier of France.. Auricular acupuncture is the stimulation of the external ear for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions. These health conditions may be taking place anywhere throughout the body. The stimulation of these acupuncture points can be done manually, with an acupuncture needle, a laser, magnets or ear seeds. Regardless of the means of stimulation, auricular acupuncture can be a very powerful addition to regular acupuncture treatments.. The current form of auricular acupuncture came about after Dr. Nogier noticed ...
Needle acupuncture, originating from China, is used in Scandinavia and in other Western countries as a treatment for infantile colic. The treatment is controversial, as infants and toddlers are unable to consent to treatment. We aimed to evaluate the method and the efficacy of acupuncture treatments for infantile colic.. Methods. We did a pilot study to assess the feasibility of our proposed design of a trial to assess the efficacy of percutaneous needle acupuncture. We carried out a prospective, blinding-validated, randomised controlled multi-centre trial in general practice. We did a systematic review and a blinding test validation based on individual patient data from all randomised controlled trials. We did a qualitative study in Shanghai to explore contemporary practices and clinical recommendations regarding the use of acupuncture for infants.. Results. We improved the standardisation of the intervention procedure and changed the blinding procedure as a result of the pilot study.. We found ...

A standardised anaesthesia regimen was used. Phenobarbital sodium (0.1 g intrasmuscular) and atropine (0.5 mg intrasmuscular) were administered for premedication half an hour before entering the operating theatre. Standard monitors were used during the intraoperative period to measure pulse oxygen saturation, heart rate, blood pressure and end-tidal CO2 gas tension. Anaesthesia was induced with midazolam (0.06-0.10 mg/kg intravenous (IV)), fentanyl (0.004-0.008 mg/kg IV), cisatracurium (0.15-0.20 mg/kg IV) and etomidate (0.20-0.40 mg/kg IV). Anaesthesia was maintained with propofol (4-8 mg/kg/h IV), sevoflurane (0.8-2%, inspired concentration) and atracurium (5 mg/kg/h IV) after endotracheal intubation. The pneumoperitoneum pressure range was set to 14-16 mm Hg.. After induction of anaesthesia, levobupivacaine 0.25% (3 mL per incision, a total of 9 mL per patient) was infiltrated in all patients before skin incisions for trocar insertion. Opioid analgesics were also standardised perioperatively. ...

BREAST CANCER PATIENTS using ACUPUNCTURE for FATIGUE - 70% Gwen Wyatt, a professor with the College of Nursing said There are more than two million breast cancer survivors today, and persistent cancer-related fatigue is one of the most common and distressing symptoms and is associated with decreased quality of life, poor sleep quality and depression. Wyatt said pilot research has shown self-administered acupressure on ACUPUNCTURE POINTS can significantly decrease fatigue by as much as 70 percent in cancer survivors, as well as improve sleep quality. There are few treatment options for persistent cancer-related fatigue, and these costly treatments often require a trained practitioner or have unacceptable side effects, Wyatt said. On the other hand, self-administered acupressure on ACUPUNCTURE POINTS is nontoxic, inexpensive and requires minimal instruction. It appears to be a promising treatment for persistent fatigue.

N2 - Objectives: The objective of this study was to describe a serious complication of acupuncture treatment in a high-risk patient with aplastic anemia. Design: A 44-year-old woman with aplastic anemia experienced right calf pain after running. After poor results with physical therapy, she received needle acupuncture for pain relief. However, aggravated pain with swelling of the right calf developed 2 days later. Results: On admission, she had a temperature of 38.8°C, a white blood cell count of 500/μL, and hemoglobin of 5.7g/dL. Ultrasound and computed tomography scans showed swelling of the right calf muscle fascia, and aspiration drew out Staphylococcus infection. The symptoms improved after treatment with parenteral antibiotics. Conclusions: This case illustrates that necrotizing fasciitis must be ...
This study was conducted on a human cadaveric hand. A 25×40 mm disposable stainless steel acupuncture needle was inserted at PC8 (Laogong), SI3 (Houxi) and TE4 (Yangchi), based on an acupuncture text.4 PC8 is situated within the interosseous muscle space between the second and third metacarpal bones, next to the metacarpophalangeal joint (MCPJ). After making a loose fist, SI3 is found proximal to the fifth MCPJ, at the end of the transverse crease of the hypothenar muscle, on the dividing line between the red and white flesh. TE4 is located on the transverse crease of the dorsum of the wrist during extension, in the depression lateral to the tendon of extensor digitorum communis. Three insertions were performed at each acupuncture point to ensure consistency of needling location. X-rays were performed using a mini C-arm (Orthoscan mobile DI). Posteroanterior (PA) and lateral views of the cadaveric hand were obtained after needle insertion ...

Curious about acupuncture, but not crazy about needles? Electroacupuncture may be in your future. Instead of needles, the technique uses a small electric current and conductive pads to stimulate acupuncture points. You just feel a warm vibration and a slight tingle, and thats it, says electroacupuncturist George A. Ulett, M.D., clinical professor of psychiatry at the Missouri Institute of Mental Health in St. Louis. Dr. Ulett has been studying acupuncture since a trip to China in the late Sixties, and practicing electroacupuncture for almost 20 years. In two recent studies (Southern Medical Journal, 12/98; Biological Psychiatry, 7/15/98) he reports that the procedure can greatly reduce--and in some cases eliminate--the need to take drugs for arthritis pain, backaches, migraines, depression, anxiety, addictions, digestive disorders, and other ailments. Often called evidence-based acupuncture, electroacupuncture bypasses the traditional Eastern notion that acupuncture works by correcting ...

Acupuncture has been successfully used for clinical treatment in East Asian countries for numerous centuries. The effectiveness of the treatment, however, is still unclear and many challenges remain in proving its medicinal effect with scientific rigor. Since its introduction to the Western world in the early 1970s, the effect of acupuncture has been discussed, whether favorably or critically, along with newly published neuro-biological theories. Melzack et al.[1] presented the theory of gate control, which was an early model of acupuncture-induced pain suppression[1, 2] and was eventually developed into the Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation method (TENS)[3]. Le Bars discussed the idea of Diffuse Noxious Inhibitory Controls (DNIC)[4]. Bing argued that there was an affinity between the acupuncture-induced pain suppression effect and DNIC; yet the same authors deny the singular quality of acupuncture, implying that acupuncture stimulation is nothing but a kind of noxious inhibitory ...
Infantile colic is a common painful clinical condition associated with signs of distended intestines and an increase in colon peristalsis. However, clinical documentation of observed gastrointestinal functions in the condition is still lacking. Even though the ailment is common, no clear treatment guidelines exist. While acupuncture with minimal stimulation has been shown to be effective in reducing crying behaviour of infants suffering from colic, the documented effect of acupuncture on gastrointestinal function in children with infantile colic is scarce. This case series study aims to document the symptoms of routinely rated gastrointestinal function and the changes in these symptoms after minimal acupuncture in a larger group of children with infantile colic. This study included 913 infants with normal weights, and lengths at birth. The infants mean age was 5.4 weeks when the observations started, and had colic symptoms since two weeks after birth.

All three active treatments reduced menstrual cycle pain rapidly (within an hour) with minimal side effects, but acupuncture point injection with vitamin K3 in SP6 was found to be optimal, producing a greater clinical and statistically significant reduction in pain. One to two units on the NRS for pain has been described as clinically significant by studies designed to evaluate unit scores with clinical improvement.24 ,25 Acupuncture point injection with vitamin K3 provided rapid relief of severe as well as moderate pain due to dysmenorrhoea. Effective treatment can be administered in a high-volume hospital clinic and may be especially useful to women whose pain is unmitigated by other methods. No differences between groups were found on long-term effects, but at the end of the study, participants in all active treatment groups endured significantly less pain over a reduced duration and reported fewer activity restrictions, fewer hours in bed and the consumption of fewer drugs for menstrual pain ...
To determine whether stimulating acupuncture points on the skin via electrical stimulation (rather than needles) could control symptoms in people with diabetic gastroparesis, researchers enrolled 12 people - four men and eight women, with an average age of 51 - in an eight-week study. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either four weeks of electrical stimulation of gastrointestinal-specific acupuncture points via watch-sized stimulators or four weeks of a sham (inactive) treatment. At the end of this period, the participants were switched to the alternate treatment for the remaining four weeks of the study. Active treatments involved placing stimulators at acupuncture points p6 (just above the wrist crease) and ST36 (on the front of the leg, just below the knee). As stated by study author Richard W. McCallum, MD, Those points, according to Chinese medicine, tap into control centers for nausea, heartburn, and regurgitation. They also are near nerves. Inactive treatments, for the ...
Acupuncture is an effective low impact therapy that accesses self healing aspects of the bodies neurohormonal system.. Due to increased research in recent years acupuncture has an evidence base greater than many conventional medical treatments.. The efficacy of acupuncture does not depend on the style used. In other words contemporary acupuncture taught in a short course based almost solely on modern anatomy and physiology works as well as traditional approaches taking 3 or 4 years.* This is a game changing point - acupuncture can be taught in a few weeks to qualified medical professionals. Most contemporary acupuncture schools subject students to unnecessary ideology and traditional detail resulting in the dual burdens of high debt and low income. Essentially students are being inducted into the belief systems of their teachers at great cost to them. As I have shown previously this has financially ruinous consequences and is an ethical travesty.. Most traditional acupuncture training is of low ...
Endometriosis is a gynaecological disease that causes chronic pelvic pain, most notably painful menstruation, as the most common complaint. Acupuncture is frequently used to treat both pain and various gynaecological conditions. This review examined the effectiveness of acupuncture for reducing pain in endometriosis; however only one study met our inclusion criteria. The data from the included study, involving 67 women, indicated that ear acupuncture is more effective compared to Chinese herbal medicine for reducing menstrual pain. The study did not report whether participants suffered any side effects from their treatments. Larger, well‐designed studies comparing acupuncture with conventional therapies are necessary to confirm these results.

Chronic Urticaria. Before trying acupuncture with Gina, I was suffering from chronic urticaria for four months. Chronic urticaria is defined as hives that persist longer than six weeks, and it is an incredibly miserable condition to live with. The hives would itch and last all day long. I had an excellent team of doctors following my condition, but after having two skin biopsies and extensive blood panels taken, that all came back normal, my physicians were unable to treat my condition. My quality of life changed dramatically from the illness. After my very first acupuncture treatment with Gina, my body felt a sense of peace. I felt better than I had in months. Within one week of beginning acupuncture and herbs with Gina my condition improved drastically. The hives were decreasing daily. After two weeks of treatment I was nearly hive free. I am so very grateful for Ginas services. I truly believe she saved my life and she has provided me with a lifetime alternative to biomedicine. This holiday ...

In a 1987-88 study in Munich by Hans-Dieter Betz and other scientists, 500 dowsers were initially tested for their skill, and the experimenters selected the best 43 among them for further tests. Water was pumped through a pipe on the ground floor of a two-storey barn. Before each test, the pipe was moved in a direction perpendicular to the water flow. On the upper floor, each dowser was asked to determine the position of the pipe. Over two years, the dowsers performed 843 such tests and, of the 43 pre-selected and extensively tested candidates, at least 37 showed no dowsing ability. The results from the remaining 6 were said to be better than chance, resulting in the experimenters' conclusion that some dowsers "in particular tasks, showed an extraordinarily high rate of success, which can scarcely if at all be explained as due to chance ... a real core of dowser-phenomena can be regarded as empirically proven."[51]. Five years after the Munich study was published, Jim T. Enright, a professor of ...

In the 1930s, at Duke University in North Carolina, J. B. Rhine and his wife Louisa E. Rhine conducted investigation into extrasensory perception. While Louisa Rhine concentrated on collecting accounts of spontaneous cases, J. B. Rhine worked largely in the laboratory, carefully defining terms such as ESP and psi and designing experiments to test them. A simple set of cards was developed, originally called Zener cards[8] - now called ESP cards. They bear the symbols circle, square, wavy lines, cross, and star; there are five cards of each in a pack of 25.. In a telepathy experiment, the "sender" looks at a series of cards while the "receiver" guesses the symbols. To try to observe clairvoyance, the pack of cards is hidden from everyone while the receiver guesses. To try to observe precognition, the order of the cards is determined after the guesses are made. Later he used dice to test for psychokinesis.[9][10]. The parapsychology experiments at Duke evoked criticism from academics and others who ...

In the early 1970s, there was an upsurge of interest in the paranormal in the United States. This generated concern in some quarters[which?], where it was seen as part of a growing tide of irrationalism.[5][full citation needed] In 1975, secular humanist philosopher and professor Paul Kurtz had previously[when?] initiated a statement, "Objections to Astrology", which was co-written with Bart Bok and Lawrence E. Jerome, and endorsed by 186 scientists including 19 Nobel laureates and published in the American Humanist Association (AHA)'s newsletter The Humanist,[5] of which Kurtz was then editor. According to Kurtz, the statement was sent to every newspaper in the United States and Canada. The positive reaction to this statement encouraged Kurtz to invite "as many skeptical researchers as [he] could locate" to the 1976 conference with the aim of establishing a new organization dedicated to examining critically a wide range of paranormal claims.[6] Among those invited were Martin Gardner, Ray ...
The essays in the book fall into three general categories, dealing with ancient civilizations and certain unscientific theories regarding them, occult-related subjects, and pseudoscience in general. Anecdotes from history and de Camp's travels to some of the locales he writes about pepper the narrative. The first eight chapters fall into the first category. Discussions of Bronze Age Troy and the ancient Sudanese civilization of Kush counter romantic speculations with a resume of what is known of them from historical sources and archaeological investigations. In contrast, the section on King Arthur, of whom little factual information has been established, puts to rest unverified notions regarding him by tracing the development and elaboration of his legend down through the ages. The chapter on the Maya debunks diffusionist theories seeking the origin of their culture in Old World civilizations rather than from indigenous factors. Later sections about Teotihuacan and the Toltecs serve more as ...
